Dave Stetson Santa Carving Class FinishedHere's the completed carving from the Dave Stetson Santa carving class I completed a couple of weeks ago, along with some progress photos. Dave is a great instructor, and the Zoom classes were interesting and useful. He has his phone mounted vertically above his carving table, and has iPad or computer at eye level just off to one side. The phone shows his hands while he's carving, and when he is explaining something or showing the class carving options, or reference books or whatever, the Zoom operator switches the views to the computer/iPad and then back to the phone as appropriate. Students can ask questions at any time, and Dave tries to answer all of them. After a session is over, the recording of it is put online so the class students can access it and watch as many times as necessary while carving…Dave is holding another class soon. For info, search Facebook for “Dave Stetson” or use this link: https://www.facebook.com/dave.stetson.14I fastened the roughout to my Eli vise at the start – because of the nature of the duplicator machine, the base sloped up towards the feet. I shaved it down flat using a carpenter chisel and my mallet.Roughout mounted… Dave's roughout gave us the option of carving Santa with a stocking cap on his head, or holding it in his hand. Another option was to carve an ornament or something else from the hanging hat… I chose the hat on head optionDrawing in the facial features, flow lines on the beard, etc. You can see here the result of carving away the slope on the base: Santa's boots are abnormally thick, so they'll be carved down later.Gouging out the area between the legs.
Carving is pretty much complete here – other than a few more details

The wreath is an add-on from the doll house furnishing collection at the hobby store.
I thought this instruction was well worth the cost and I learned a lot…Claude
